BELL mechanical design of a aircraft hanger

Deadhorse Aviation Center

The project consisting of a 67,000-square foot facility on Alaska’s North Slope that included a 20,000-square foot aircraft hangar, 47,000 square feet of offices, 24 individual living quarters, a full commercial kitchen, and cargo handling facilities.  This facility also includes a medical facility and indoor ambulance storage.  The design allowed for: 65,000 gallons of fire water storage; hydronic heating systems; constant volume ventilation systems; in-floor radiant heat for living areas and offices; and, snow melt for entries, the hangar door, and all overhead doors.  Since the facility is located in an area with no water distribution, domestic water storage and on-site waste disposal were also provided; these two systems require special design considerations to provide domestic water at the proper pressure, they also provide lift stations to remove the waste from various areas throughout the facility.

Gathering Center 1 (GC1) Wet Gas Project

Location: Prudhoe Bay, Alaska

In 2015 BELL provided 3D scanning services for 19 complete modules and the associated exterior interconnected piping located at the GC1 facility. This effort was completed to help BP engineers in the projects initial planning phase as well as their sub-contractors in the final design phase. The goal of this project was to have a completed design in place before the next facility turnaround (TAR) to remove and replace the wet-gas piping throughout the facility. BELL laser scanned all the modules associated with project, tied all of the gathered laser scan data to the local plant control network and provided a complete ACAD model of all of the elements within each module including, but not limited to; structural steel, piping down to ½” diameter, electrical boxes and conduit runs, HVAC, instrumentation, and architectural features sertraline anxiety.


Baker Hughes Production Facility

Location: Deadhorse, Alaska

BELL provided civil, land surveying, mechanical, and plumbing design for this 93,700 SF production facility. Design included hydronic heat and gas fired boilers, ventilation for shop areas and office spaces, and self-contained water storage with drain/fill hookups coordinated with the local service providers requirements.

Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline

Alaska Natural Gas Pipeline

Location: North Slope, Interior, Alaska

    BELL  provided surveying services to a large natural gas pipeline (AKLNG). A total of two crews  provided survey support for environmental team to conduct research over the proposed pipeline and gas treatment plant on Alaska’s North Slope and Interior.

BPXA Term Contract

Location: North Slope, Alaska

BELL has had maintained a stable and continuous presence on Alaska’s North Slope for more than 37 years.

Our team recognizes how important the oil & gas industry is for Alaska’s economy and ultimately, Alaskan residents.

BELL has been providing surveying, civil engineering, mechanical engineering and 3D laser scanning for our current term contract with BP Exploration, Alaska (BPXA) for 32 years, which involves standard daily practices including supervising field and office personnel in various surveying tasks for all pads, roadways, pipeline routes, and site facilities. We also provide quality control services for installed earthen and concrete materials and civil engineering support for the design of new and/or improved sites throughout the oil patch. In summary, we are in charge of the coordination and technical oversight of civil engineering, surveying, and quality assurance in pipeline and facility construction projects.
